Default Help plz - backup of backup - probs.

sponsored links

OK guys - very late to this .. so dont know much - looking for a bit of help if poss. I have DC which plays backups fine. I tried to make a backup of Crazy Taxi2 which is a self booter ? .. I have tried this twice now and same result each time - nothing ! .... when I insert the "new" backup it just continually spins in the DC drive ! .... dont wanna try it again as it looks as though it aint gonna work for me. I used Clonecd for both attempts as I thought this would be best ... first time I tried a philips burner and second time a ricoh ... the ricoh has no problems with sub channel data etc ( not sure of the philips - this is why I tried a different one ! ) So there it is - anyone had this happen and know how I can solve it ? ... I am using cheap overprinted cdrs which I just got recently - have been fine for everything else - data / vcd etc .... dont know if this is a factor ? ... HELP - really appreciate anything at this stage .... cheers guys.

use disc juggler for DC games. clone cd sucks.

Make a cd-->image

Then image-->cd

leave all settings default.

Thanks for that - anyone else got an idea - I thought clonecd was supposed to be one of the best ? ......

If your burning Disk At One (DAO) in Clone try the Track At Once option and burn at a slower speed with cdrs that you know have worked on that particular DC.

Mitsu50 is right though really, DJ is the best but it causes problems on certain set ups.

Could try cleaning the DC laser.

OK cypher - will try another proggy and clean laser etc ..... just that the dc reads the "original" backup - no probs ... and when I try it in machine it loads 100% everytime ! - but the new b/up just spins in drive without ever looking like its gonna load !!! - cant tell if its bad burn or bad disks etc etc .... I really dont know much about these things - so I assumed that using clone would result in a perfectly "cloned" cd ? ... thanks for all your help here.
